out of the mouth of babes

first, let me say that this kid is awesome. second, i adore this dad for supporting his son. refreshing thing from an arkansas family.

why is it that people think we get to vote on civil rights? was it a vote in alabama that ended segregation? no, it was the supreme court in brown v. the board of education.

if we had left segregation up to the general public to vote on in the 1960's i could name about 10 states that would still be regulating where people sat on a bus.

it saddens and angers me that something even a 10 year old can see is so difficult for so many of my countrymen to comprehend.
